HCC Scotland Neck Off-Campus Center receives new technology

Halifax Community College Scotland Neck Off-Campus Center staff and students are now enjoying new technology. Recently, HCC replaced the older computers that were in use with 16 new computers, a projector and printer. The new computers feature Internet access and Microsoft 2010 software. Internet access was paid for by a private donor.


Microsoft Office Class Instructor Florine Harris said, “This equipment provides a chance for students to learn more. With the Internet connection, we will be able to review things we have not been able to before.” Harris currently has a full class. “Everyone who was in the last class came back for this class,” she explained.


“This new equipment also allows students to stay current and up-to-date,” added HCC Computer Skills Specialist Ellen Grant. A future partnership is already in the works at the center. HCC’s Career Readiness Certificate (CRC) Program will work with Regeneration Development Group to conduct CRC testing online.
